    My family wants to say THANK YOU to Anderson. We all feel like we are living in a war zone here in the Gulf Coast. Waiting with no control over what happens to our lives. Having to rely upon information from a company that seems to NEVER tell the truth, and a government who seems to be run by that company. We are afraid to let our children in the water. With two children with asthma, we worry about the air from the burns and the dispersant. We worry the earth is going to rupture from the pressure not being releived and we won't have time to get out. These are real concerns. Anderson keep BP and our Gov. in the hot seat. We are all already a science experiment because of the dispersants. I know our family feels a sense of comfort which is hard to come by in this mess knowing Anderson is there. Please CNN we here beg of you keep Anderson there and Anderson stay on them we're counting on you!

    We do have a right to know. The waters that are polluted with oil are our waters and the impact to the habitat in those waters will impact all of us in some way for years to come. BP needs to be accountable for their negligence.

    There are many speculations, but what really is happening is unclear. Finally, the problem was solved? Keeping Them Honest.

    BP is not NASA ... a government organization ... you actually don't have a "right" to know. All your righteous indignation is a bit silly really. BP has a real business reason to let people know what is happening, as soon as they know themselves and can provide some facts, but a lot of this work is moment-to-moment and the facts are changing ...and their focus should be on fixing the problem and not on explaining every little thing that might ot mioght not be going on to some English major in front of a camera blustering about his "right to know."

    I don't think the media has been very fair to BP, the Coast Guard and all the other agencies involved in this terrible tragedy. Oily birds and tar balls on the beach make good fodder for the evening news. This was a terrible industrial accident that no one could have foreseen. If a camera blew up in one of CNN's studios and 11 people died, how would CNN deal with that story?
